Phone consultation The relationship between a client and their therapist is a key component of therapy and it is important that you find a therapist that you feel comfortable with. I encourage you to contact me at 978-921-1088 if you would like to discuss potentially beginning therapy. I will make every effort to return your call as soon as possible when I am in the office (as stated in my voice mail message - typically all day T, W, Th and also Friday mornings).
During the initial phone consult (usually about 10-15 minutes) we can briefly discuss your current concerns. If our phone conversation indicates that we both feel I may be helpful to you, we will schedule a first session which will be in-person or via telehealth for 50-60 minutes.
Preparing For Your First Appointment After you schedule your first appointment, an email will be sent to you with a link and instructions for completing your intake forms online using an confidential encrypted portal. You'll fill out the forms by typing directly into the online forms, be able to give electronic signatures, and the completed forms will be securely sent back to me electronically. Please attach a picture of the front and back of your insurance card if you are able as well. My "Informed Consent and Office Policies" and "Telehealth Consent" forms are especially important to read through as they have important and helpful information about your privacy and my practice policies. If you have questions after reading these forms, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
First Appointment This session will provide us both with more information about your concerns and goals, and about whether it would be helpful to schedule future sessions. The earliest appointment times I offer are at 9am and the latest are 4:30pm. If, after this meeting, you or I for any reason feel that we should not continue to work together, I will offer you referrals to connect with another therapist who may be a better fit.
